no one


no one else knows
the echo of your name
in the voice of thunder
or the flash in your eyes
when you gaze down at me
the way you break over me
like a sudden cloudburst
your eyes wide open and
pure joy written on your face
no one else knows
how you come alive
in this haven we’ve made
when the rain comes
and washes us clean
no one else knows
how you love me
but I know, so do you



For today’s prompt, write a what nobody knows poem. It’s easy to write a poem about what everybody already knows, though it may be difficult to write an interesting poem about such things. Still, use today’s prompt to explore things people may not know–secret stories, locations, and so on.
